    Default Differences between the pre-face SRi and SXi

    Having owned both for a while at the same time, I'm trying to work out exactly what differences there are between the pre-facelift SRi and SXi.

    I've already made several changes to my SXi to "SRi" it and while I know I have a few more things to do, wondering what else there is that I may have missed off my list.

    I've already done basics like the map reading lights, sunglasses holder etc. I put SRi springs on it last year which tightened it up considerably. This week I've been fitting a GID instead of the TID that was in it so am well on my way.

    So far on my list of other things on my "to do" list to "SRi" it, I have...

    Front and rear bumpers.
    Front fogs and inserts.
    Side skirts (??)
    Chrome window inserts.
    Chrome speedo dials.
    Colour code door handles.
    Pre-face SRi wheels.

    What I ideally want to end up with is a car that basically looks completely standard, but as an SRi not an SXi. I'm more interested in what's inside the car (ICE etc) than outside.

    Am I right in that there aren't many other differences (if any) inside or out and that basically having done these changes my car is effectively an SRi in everything but name or am I missing some critical things out here?

    Thanks guys, there's not a lot of differences I knew that. The radio isn't an issue for me as I have my Alpine double DIN unit anyway. But the little trim pieces are things I want to work on and get hold of, things like the chrome dial surrounds and bits like that.

    Only bit I can't replace easily or cheaply is the engine, I'd love to have my 2.0T back, the 2.2 just hasn't quite got the same "fun" factor to it, but it's still a pokey engine.

    Working my way through the list slowly as funds allow (not much at the moment lol).

    54reg and 05 pre face were sri spec except for the wheels and TID.
    put facelift sri 17's on mine but havn't bothered trying to swap the TID as it looks like an expensive job, reprogramming etc.
